problems when installing phpbb

I am trying to setup my own forum with the phpbb source. What i have done are:
  1. Install Apache (pacman -S apache) and then uncomment the line:
          LoadModule php5_module             modules/
  in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. Apache runs with no problem (/etc/rc.d/httpd start)
  2. Install php (pacman -S php) and then uncomment the line:
 in /etc/php.ini
   Php has been tested and displayed by web browser with a test.php file:
               <title>PHP Test Page</title>

               This is Arch Linux, running PHP.

     3. Install mysql (pacman -S mysql) and started successful. mysql user and group are found in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
        Install the dbase:
         #mysql_install_db --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --user=mysql
        Add root user:
         #mysqladmin -u root password '1'
        Login into mysql successful:
         #mysql -u root -p

      4. Install phpMyAdmin successful
          using web browser to login: http://localhost/phpMyAdmin
          to create a database, user (called ABC), as well as password for this user.

       5 Install phpbb package (pacman -S phpbb)

The problem is that when try to install phpbb in :http://localhost/phpbb/install/install.php i got the error message:

"The PHP configuration on your server doesn't support the database type that you chose"

I tried to remove apache, php, mysql and installed again but it didn't help even when i try to update the whole system (pacman -Suy).
Can anyone give me a clue to fix this error ? i got stuck with this problem for many days.

Thank you very much!
